3D Product Architect

Create, review and evaluate 3D models on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform

3D Product Architect Overview

The ENOVIA 3DEXPERIENCE 3D Product Architect (PAU-OC) Role provides the ability to explore and author multi-CAD product structures. Navigation and authoring is made available through a shared experience between a structure widget and a 3D visualization widget.

Create, modify and explore multi-CAD product structures

Built on the cloud-based 3DEXPERIENCE® platform, 3D Product Architect is a browser-based solution that enables you to create, modify and explore multi-CAD product structures in a single context, enhancing understanding of designs and design changes. It helps you reduce design iterations by making review and digital mock-up of designs, design variants and proposed changes universally accessible to stakeholders.

Engineering teams prepare initial product architectures by authoring multi-CAD structures; replacing and updating engineering items and positioning them in 3D for further detailed design in CAD systems.

3D Product Architect allows architects to apply the effectivity of engineering items to finalize a configured product structure.

3D Product Architect Benefits

Flexible design workflows and real-time collaboration

  • Create Digital Mockups

    Save valuable engineering time and improve communication across the product development chain with the ability to universally access and mock up products in the cloud. More efficiently review product structures, mock up changes and reuse structures from existing products to create new structures. Maintain full control over lifecycle functions such as release and revise.

  • Explore Product Structures

    See what is happening when the structure is being changed to better understand the impact of the change. Explore product features with Measure, Section and related object capabilities.

  • Collaborate on any device

    Share your designs within your business ecosystem from any device, at any time.

  • Extend Existing Designs

    Easily create variations of existing designs and assign design context to each configured product. This provides a way to flexibly extend existing designs and more rapidly deliver products tailored to customer needs.

  • Visualize online

    Visualize 3D components instantly from any web-enabled device. Navigate tabular and 3D design data simultaneously and easily validate the differences between two product structures.

  • Mock up from Multiple CAD Solutions

    With a single context from multiple design sources, you can see products in their entirety and mock them up to better understand the impact of changes. Access design composition to help product architects understand the design mix.

Digital mock-ups & reviews

Save valuable engineering time and improve communication across the product development chain with the ability to universally access and mock up products in the cloud:

  • Visualize, explore, and edit multi-CAD product structures within a web-browser.
  • Easily navigate product structures to visualize designs and related changes.
  • Create web-based 3D digital mockups and conduct design reviews.

Modify or duplicate products

3D Product Architect allows architects to build a configured product structure.

  • Modify products under the governance of a change process.
  • Implement design changes in accordance with specific product configurations.
  • Build mockup sessions that can be loaded into CAD directly from a browser.
  • Selectively duplicate existing products to quickly derive new products.

Collaborative Tools

Easily and securely share designs, ideas and comments with your team or stakeholders, internally or externally. Benefits include:

  • Collaborative environment enables easy access for all. Everyone always has access to up-to-date design data
  • Web-based collaboration tools for review and mark-up of live data
  • No more manual file management as all revisions are stored automatically in the cloud
  • Easily connect and share data on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform

Connect to SOLIDWORKS Desktop

Connect your traditional desktop experience with SOLIDWORKS to the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform.

  • Integrated directly into SOLIDWORKS, the 3DEXPERIENCE Desktop Add-in allows you to access all of your information from the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform right from within SOLIDWORKS.
  • This workflow allows you to combine the power of SOLIDWORKS to quickly create and edit your engineering designs, with the collaborative features of the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform.

3DEXPERIENCE Works provides a Safe, Social, Connected, Informed and Structured environment for team leaders, project managers and other professionals who want to manage data on the cloud and collaborate without constraints.

Safe: Customer controlled access. Transparent cloud backup. Encrypted communication protocols. Data always safe-no overwrite, no loss of data.

Social: Integrated structured and unstructured collaboration tools enabling social innovation. Collaborate on product design or engage with your stakeholders early in product development.

Connected: Every user always connected to a single, common database. Access data anywhere, anytime, on any device. Review and markup models.

Informed: Choose from the widget library, Create and share Dashboards. Get the latest information about your product development. Always have access to your latest data.

Structured: Zero overhead data management - store and manage data across collaborative spaces, share information in communities. Find indexed data faster by using tags, custom search, etc.
